Bettye LaVette: I've Got My Own Hell to Raise
Buy! - (Anti-)
This veteran soul singer might finally get some long overdue recognition with this excellent comeback release. Produced by Joe Henry, it features LaVette performing a variety of songs – all written by women and selected with LaVette’s own hard-luck story in mind. And while the range of material stretches from rock to pop to country to folk, the songs all come out as pure soul, thanks to LaVette’s masterful, aching vocals. 8/30/2005 - Don Yates
